Share the Joy Thursday - Postcards from the edge…

 

''Come to the edge,'' He said. They said, ''We are afraid.'' ''Come to the edge,'' He said. They came. He pushed them... and they flew.
Guillaume Apollinaire

I am so loving making these little postcard pieces.

Collage from mailbox junk and old French dictionaries, Twinkle H2Os, acrylics, painting, India ink and dip pens…

Sometimes it takes me an hour to make just one.

That’s okay though.

An hour spent flying is never an hour wasted.

Put those wings to good use today, Lovely Ones.

Big Love !

What a wonderful quote!! I love your flying houses and the bright colours in your post card art. An hour to make just one? then it is truly a work of heart!

An hour spent flying is never wasted. True words! (Unless you're flying coach between a plus-size guy whose drooling in his sleep on your shoulder and a mother with a cranky baby).

My wings are tied at the moment - there is money to be made and work comes first right now... ooooh, how I long to spread them!!! In the meantime, I keep a small spark of inspiration burning until I have the time. It never goes away, and you are one of the people that keeps it alive! Thanks for the eyecandy today, it's like drinking from the well!

It's a great way to spend a snow storm. We are getting some but not as much as the south. Oh how we will sing and dance when the "real" spring shows up.

Your cards are works of art in themselves so its no wonder it is taking an hour to do them. I'll bet your recipients will be framing them. Love the flying houses. Makes me think oh yes we can out wings on everything. Now thats freedom.
